Its almost like this region is classified as a temperate rain forest (hint, it is).I'm afraid you'll get much more use out of your waders this weekend. It's been raining really hard on both sides of Pisgah for the past couple hours.
The heaviest rain should stop by this afternoon/evening, but the trail conditions will remain poor just about everywhere on Saturday.
Some of the rockier ridge-line trails mentioned will be better by Sunday, but even those will have their fair share of moist spots.
If you can wait, the majority of Pisgah will return to hero-dirt by Monday, and all of next week looks to be perfect.
This rain is pretty ridiculous though....when I moved here in 2007 you could just about guarantee 50 good weeks of MTB per year. Fast forward to 2018 and now 2019 and we'll be lucky if we see 40 weeks of acceptable riding conditions. Seriously it's been that wet. So much so that my family and I frequently discuss relocating somewhere drier! (and not just for MTB time)
please make it stop!
Western NC...."home to some epic duck hunting!"
Gonna hold off for today. Ended up going to hike Black Balsam and got surprised by a good bit of snowfall which was cool. Probably going to try middle/lower black + Sycamore tomorrow. We hiked Moore Cove earlier and the trails there looked surprisingly good.Daniel is a better option, actually one of the better choices if you have to ride today. Wait as late as you can to let the trees do some drinking and have fun.
